Dear it ain't me,

If I'm someone is going to ask for suggestions, I figure I should give some too.

The Order of the Stick is a webcomic that started out as a spoof on Dungeons and Dragons, although in recent years it's shifted away from the game-based aspects and focused more on the story instead. It's the first webcomic with a consistent story that I ever really got into. (It's also one of the only new pieces of media I've encountered by means other than social media in the last four years or so - I learned about it via TVTropes.) It started in 2003 and as of today has 1,203 entries; it's currently on its final big story arc but when we're talking about a comic with 17 years of history, that could still be a couple years' worth of material.

Dumbing of Age is another long-running story-focused comic I started reading around the beginning. It's... well, it's a lot. Including nearly ten years old with new strips published daily, although only two or three months have passed in-universe. SAY MORE THIS IS BORING AND DUMBING OF AGE IS NOT.

Fangs is a new webcomic by Sarah Andersen about a romance between a vampire and a werewolf. It's really cute, in a way that I never would have guessed literal bloodlust could be.

False Knees captures the personality of birds in a way I've never seen anyone else do quite as well. The art is also beautiful. Unlike the other three, it's not episodic and also doesn't update very often, so I recommend starting from the newest comics and working backwards.

Dear yayfulnessn't,

Lore Olympus is incredible, if you haven't checked it out. It's a modern-day, yet still mythological retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth. The art is breathtaking, and I'm seriously impressed by the story so far. Also, Jim Henson Studios is apparently adapting it into a TV series? So that's pretty awesome.

Also, My Dad is Dracula. Which is just a webcomic about the son of Dracula, whose dad says hello to him every day in a different costume. Here are a few examples to show you what I mean:

I send them to my partner every day and he thinks it's the stupidest thing ever. He's wrong: it's the best thing ever. And that only fuels my passion to keep sending them.

Dear yayfulnessn't,

You're probably already familiar but if not: Darths & Droids (it also has a Lord of the Rings-based predecessor that I haven't read, DM of the Rings). Be sure to read the DM tips at the bottom of the panels too!

Dear y'ay'nt fooling me,

It's a graphic novel that releases but once a week, one page at a time, but I love the lavish artwork and compelling story of Necropolis by Jake and Kathryn Wyatt. It's one of the things I look forward to most in any given week.

The other I'd recommend is False Knees, a combination of wry, dark humor and lush illustrations of birds, rabbits, and other woodland creatures. I think you'd enjoy this one.

Miss you,

Dear yaylessness,

I don't read many web comics but Dr. McNinja is just fantastic. The author, Chris Hastings went on to write for Deadpool and Gwenpool. Dr. McNinja was born into a Ninja family, trained in the medical and surgical arts, he kills with one hand and heals with the other. His receptionist is a gorilla. He cures little girls of "Paul Bunyon disease" which turns people in giant lumberjacks. His archenemy is King Radical, an old guy who wears a crown and does sick tricks on his skateboard. He is a disappointment to his ninja family since he chooses to heal some people and doesn't just kill everyone he meets on sight. I hope I have sufficiently convinced you to try reading this. 

I linked to the first story arch that is all in color because it was kind of a new age of the comic. There are some references to the previous stories but for the most part you can just start from there. The stories before that one are still great though so go back and read some of the older ones once you get into it.
